It’s time for another Eats of the Week! A few snapshots into my food this week, including the most dee-lish ice cream, eaten during my trip to Chattanooga.
Well. This week has been a doozy.
On top of my usual school workload, I flew out of Seattle early Thursday morning headed for Chattanooga. I had a busy weekend there and flew back on Saturday evening. Our flight home was delayed and once we finally landed, two people were escorted off the plane by the police. So that was exciting. We finally got home at around 2:00 am on Sunday morning and I haven’t quite caught up on sleep.
Anyways, travel stories aside, let’s get on to the eats! Without further adieu, here are some pictures of the foods I enjoyed this week (in no particular order):
I was feeling a huge salad for lunch on Sunday, so this salad with leftover steak, broccoli, and sweet potatoes, and this dressing. Served with a chocolate custard shake.
I roasted potatoes for dinner one night. Butter, salt, pepper, and into the oven until soft. Then I added Parmesan cheese and stuck them under the broiler so the cheese and edges of the potatoes got nice and crispy. Served alongside chicken and sautéed vegetables.
Our plane left at 6:30 in the morning on Thursday, so we drove up to Seattle Wednesday night and stayed in a hotel next to the airport. I packed a dish of yogurt topped with almond butter and these brownies (minus the raspberries) to eat in the morning to tide me over until after the rushing around to board the plane was over. Eaten at 4:00 in the morning.
Had an Rx bar on the plane. It was my first time trying one, and of course, it had to be the chocolate sea salt. I ate it with an iced americano from a coffeeshop in the airport, with one of my favorite books to keep me company.
Dinner in Chattanooga at Beast and Barrel. I had a gyro, with braised lamb, pickled onions, greens, tomatoes, and tzatziki, and a side of citrus broccolini. Nom. I loved the vibe of this restaurant, and it was so hard to decide what to get. I made a good decision, though.
Dinner was followed by a scoop of ice cream at Clumpies. Usually, I’m a mint chocolate chip person, but cookie dough sounded perfect, so cookie dough it was. (And it was perfect, by the way.)
A taco salad for lunch on Saturday. The stuff at the bottom of the plate was black bean hummus, which I’m definitely going to have to try to recreate.
I didn’t take pictures of the rest of my meals in Chattanooga, so here’s a few from after I got back.
I typically snap pictures of oh, maybe somewhere between 50% and 70% of my food, depending on how I feel. Since I’ve been on my oatmeal kick, my phone contains an embarrassing amount of photos of bowls of oatmeal. In case you wanted to know. But I won’t share them all. Even I, oatmeal lover in the extreme, wouldn’t want to be inundated with 35986 pictures of oats.
So I’m limiting myself to one oatmeal picture. I had this dreamy chocolate blueberry banana oatmeal (based off of this recipe) for breakfast yesterday morning.
And I made this skillet frittata with veggies and potatoes for lunch. With coffee on the side. Obviously.
And the final picture for this post: a chocolate custard shake which I sipped while working on this post in the library. Peaceful spaces to work make me happy.
Hope you eat something delicious today!
